You may know Ken Arkind from previous poetry slams done here at Morningside under the name of “The Dynamic Duo.” However, you may not know that he is the Executive Director of “Minor Disturbance,” an independent literary arts organization in Denver, Colorado. Its many programs aim to help youth discover their voice through poetry and performance. On February 19th, Ken will be doing a virtual talk about his experiences working at Minor Disturbance. His talk will focus on the following topics: the view of poetry in today’s modern world and how poetry and performance can work together to benefit younger generations. This event is open to the public and will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 P.M. at the UPS auditorium in the Lincoln Center.
